A Coffee Addict’s Guide to the Best Coffee Shops in Pensacola

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UWF chapter.

Coffee is something most of us drink on a regular basis, and before writing this article, I thought the best coffee shop in Pensacola was Starbucks. Looking through my GPS for coffee shops, I was pleasantly surprised to learn Pensacola is has hidden gems all over the city.  This means we can get our coffee fix virtually anywhere.

The Drowsy Poet is a literature-inspired coffee shop with a cozy, warm environment. They have several gluten-free options for lunch, and their coffee is one of the best. The Poetchino, their signature drink, is much like a Starbucks Frappuccino, but without the bellyache. My favorite Poetchino is the mocha with a mocha wall, it tastes like a chocolate shake but with coffee!
